This is one of my all time favorites, went with Grandma and the kids, we all enjoyed it tremendously. We had to entice Grandma to come because she thought she wouldn't enjoy this, but we all did!

Hands down one of the greatest animated movies since Toy Story. Wonderful story and great for the whole family. I recommend this movie to everyone--.unless you are just completely retarded and in denial about animated movies. Two thumbs way up!!

Awesome movie. Something for all ages and both male and female. Funny and action pacled. You'll want to watch it more than once.

Washington Post
A briskly paced computer-animated entertainment that uses the format to maximum effect, the way "Avatar" does. Full Review

The reason it deserves to be seen in a theater with special glasses on, rather than slapped on the DVD player when the children are acting up -- lies in those airborne sequences. Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
The multiply authored screenplay is based very loosely on Cressida Cowell's popular children's books, but it owes just as much to "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" and the John Lennon songbook. Full Review
Betsy Sharkey
Los Angeles Times
There are times the action lags, and when the dialogue falls back on pop cultural references it feels contrived and forced but, mostly, like the mythical creatures at the heart of this tale, the movie soars. Full Review

Who would have thought a fire-breathing monster could be one of the most adorable on-screen critters since Babe? Full Review
